Following a suggestion of A. Kitaev, we explore the connection between fault-tolerant quantum computation and nonabelian quantum statistics in two spatial dimensions. A suitably designed spin system can support localized excitations (quasiparticles) that exhibit long-range nonabelian Aharonov-Bohm interactions. Quantum information encoded in the charges of the quasiparticles is highly resistant to decoherence, and can be reliably processed by carrying one quasiparticle around another. If…

Error Correcting Codes in Quantum Theory.

- Physics, MedicinePhysical review letters

It is shown that a pair of states which are, in a certain sense, “macroscopically different,” can form a superposition in which the interference phase between the two parts is measurable, providing a highly stabilized “Schrodinger cat” state.

It is found that for quantum calculations (in which the maintenance of coherence over a large number of states is important), not only must the coupling be small, but the time taken in the quantum calculation must be less than the thermal time scale.
